Siluanov also announced that Russia's offer on Ukraine's debt might be implemented withing the current IMF program.

"Our proposal is aimed at avoiding a precedent for amendment of settlement order for the states that receive the IMF support with their international creditors. If this is accepted, there will be no need to change current settlement order with IMF for official creditors. We believe our proposal is quite acceptable and might be implemented within the current IMF program for Ukraine," he said.Источник: https://en.censor.net.ua/n361252
